    The review on boiling heat transfer addresses many critically important problems including the disregard of the pumping effect of growing bubbles (PEGB), the so-called “model of the theatre of director” (MTD), and the universal MTD-based correlation. In this review, with respect to PEGB, MTD, and the MTD-based correlation, emphasis is placed on the critical consideration of the traditional model of the theatre of actors (MTA). The universality of the MTD-based correlation once again is demonstrated, including forced-boiling heat transfer in microsystems. The MTD, in combination with so-called multi-factoring concept, represents a unified framework for the investigation of the diversity of boiling heat transfer curves, including boiling hysteresis and the specific boiling regimes characteristic for microsystems.
